Match Preview

Paulo Cesar is confident Braga will find Shakhtar Donetsk more on their level after a Champions League baptism of fire against Arsenal two weeks ago.

The Portuguese side were thumped 6-0 by the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium in their first group match in Europe's premier club competition.

Their second Group H clash sees them take on Ukrainian champions Shakhtar, who were 1-0 winners over Partizan Belgrade in their opening match.

Brazilian winger Cesar told www.uefa.com: "The boys are calm, we know what we have to do, and we are sure and completely confident in our own quality and capabilities.

"Home games in the Champions League are of massive importance and we have to win ours. Braga have always been strong at home, always a tough team to beat, and we expect a great result in our debut match here.

"We know it's going to be a tough match, but we also know we have what it takes to win. What we have to do is make no mistakes and keep them under pressure.

"Shakhtar are a great team - they're Ukrainian champions for a reason - but we are sure they're at our level."

Braga, who beat Celtic and Sevilla to reach the group stages, can certainly draw confidence from their home form having won 17 or their 18 league matches under coach Domingos Paciencia.

They will definitely be without Quim, who is expected to be out until the new year after rupturing his Achilles tendon, while Alberto Rodriguez (thigh) is a doubt.

Shakhtar have won 12 of their 14 matches this season and once again sit on top of their domestic league.

The Ukrainians were the final UEFA Cup winners in 2009 before the competition was rebranded as the Europa League, and striker Eduardo believes their extra European experience could prove crucial.

The former Arsenal forward told shakhtar.com: "Braga are technically very strong as they have a lot of Brazilian players. They have the will to win but there is one shortcoming - they do not have the Champions League experience."

Fernandinho is expected to miss the group stage with a broken leg while Dmytro Chygrynskiy pulled his hamstring at the end of August and has not featured since.

Match Report

Shakhtar shine as Braga fail at home Braga endured another Champions League night to forget as Luiz Adriano's second-half double made it two wins out of two and helped Shakhtar Donetsk to a 3-0 win. The Portuguese side, who were hammered 6-0 at Arsenal in their Group H opener two weeks ago, dominated the first half but failed to take the chances that came their way. It was a different story after the break as Shakhtar's Brazilian connection put the hosts to the sword, Douglas Costa adding to his compatriot's strikes with a late penalty. The win moved the Ukrainians level on six points with the Gunners, with Braga and Partizan Belgrade both yet to get off the mark and seemingly in a battle for the third-place Europa League spot. Braga were the first to threaten, Moises seeing his header from Luis Aguiar's outswinging corner from the right blocked by defender Yaroslav Rakitskiy in the third minute. Braga's Brazilian forward Alan then sent a long-range effort wide before Darijo Srna fired over the top at the other end. The visitors were indebted to goalkeeper Andrei Pyatov in the 29th minute as he saved with his feet to keep out Salino's effort from six yards. Silvio shot high from 20 yards before Salino put another close-range chance wide of the left post as the Portuguese side ended the first half in control. But they found themselves behind 11 minutes into the second. Adriano slotted Douglas' pass from the right low into the net with his right foot. Rodrigo Lima shot wide and Paulo Cesar had an attempt from the centre of the area parried by Pyatov as Braga sought an equaliser, but instead they fell further behind in the 72nd minute. Adriano was again on hand to apply the finish, this time finding the bottom right corner from Henrikh Mkhitaryan's ball in. Eduardo had a chance to make it three but his header from Srna's corner was saved by Felipe. But the Ukrainians did add another in stoppage time, Costa slotting a penalty low into the right corner after Cesar had fouled Willian.
